Lazarus, one of the most dopest emcees, was recently visited by the BBC World Service at his studio in Detroit where he was recording his upcoming album. Lazarus really has been busy in 2013! First, he left an awestruck Russell Simmons speechless, and now he’s making headlines with the BBC. And, we have a copy of the audio interview! To make things even better, you will get a chance to watch the entire extended video interview with the BBC World Service right here on DesiHipHop.com in a matter of days.
A lot of people give up on their own dreams because of what other people think. But you know, there are ways to bend and twist and turn the reality into what you want it be.” – Lazarus
Lazarus Interview with the BBC World Service

Lazarus shares his story of Hip Hop, as well as the struggles he went through to complete medical school, and become a doctor.
If his medical skills are anything like his rhyming skills, his patients are in the best hands! “In order to become a physician, you have to dedicate yourself a 110% to getting it. It’s no joke, to go through all the years of hard work, the labor you have to put in. All the mental labor and stresses you have to go through.” said the Detroit based, Desi rapper when asked about his life as a physician. “It’s something I did by myself, it wasn’t my father’s money that paid for college. I got a full ride scholarship because I had a 4.0 GPA in high school. A lot of people give up on their own dreams because of what other people think. But you know, there are ways to bend and twist and turn the reality into what you want it be.”
As always, Lazarus inspires people to be their best. This kind of hard work ethic can truly turn any dream into reality, and push people towards greatness. This is the best thing about Hip Hop as a form of expression. It allows anyone, and everyone to share their thoughts and feelings. And Lazarus proves that even a busy doctor can go through a decade of medical training and still be one of the most skillful rhymers in Detroit!
